Nifty little idea what i did see – it’s not my idea.
- PVA glue/water
- mini choc eggs in foil
Put eggs in balloons. Blow up balloons to large egg-size.
Put wool in PVA/water mixture.
Wrap balloons in wool. Wrap from all angles.
Leave to set overnight – (ooops – not on the radiator cos there choc in them there eggs!)
Tricky bit: gently push majority of balloon away from wool before popping balloon. If you don’t then the deflating balloon pulls the wool in. Then most of balloon’s pushed away from wool, with a blade and tweezers, pop balloon and pull it away and out of the delicate wool egg lattice. It will come out in bits and needs patience and a steady hand
Voila – mini choc eggs in woollen egg lattice.
Incidentally I like real eggs!
i – scrambled, ii – poached, ii – boiled. But not with a hard yolk.
How do you like yours!?
These figures are for a medium egg of approximately 58gm fresh weight.
